Anyone remember deep fried chips?

My Mum used to buy these pasta like things & when you throw them in the hot oil they blow up like muncho chips, similar to the blue packet of skoffs. Does anyone know if they still sell them!

Were they called "Taties"!

skidz6, I do remember those "chips" - I think they were called 'Taties' and were sold under the Diamond (as in pasta) brand name.I don't know if they are still available - I checked Countown's website and they don't appear to be there, definitely not under the name 'Taties'.:-))

I remember eating these as a kid, definitely Taties.I bet if I tasted them now I'd think they are disgusting.

I've seen them in bags at Bin Inn too, maybe other bulk bin places have them too.

Bin inn, and you can cook them in a popcorn maker. My kids don't like them though.
